The 1978 and ’79 Dodge Lil Red Express Ram D150 pickup is regarded as one of the – if not the- original high performance pickup but this week’s Truckin Fast feature video looks at a Lil Red Express truck that packs far more power than the Chrysler Group had likely ever envisioned. The YouTube user who posted this run has a bunch of longer videos showing this incredible truck roaring down the quarter mile. In some videos, he mentions that the truck has gone as fast as 10.48 but in this particular video, the flare-sided super truck storms down the quarter mile in just 10.9 seconds.
We don’t know what mods this Lil Red Express Ram D150 packs, but watching it launch like a muscle car and rip through the quarter mile in the 10 second range – just barely losing to a heavily modified fox body Ford Mustang – is truly an incredible sight to see. Some of the videos of this truck claim that it is the world’s fastest Lil Red Express and whether or not that is true, there is no question that this is one truckin’ fast classic Dodge pickup.
